Any intelligence I may appear to have is purely artificial!

This is really worrisome. I thought that he just had a 'small' problem !
We do hope he'll pull out of it soon. Wishing him a speedy recovery.

Thanks Lyn. I'd come visit too if I wasn't so far away.

ashok, I'm sorry but I never meant to originally imply it was only a minor problem, going under a general anaesthetic and knife always has risks. It was just that by the time I first heard about it and saw him two full days after his op (original post), the doctors said it had been successful and post op recovery was going well so no need for falsely alarming anyone about the op itself. Post op infections are a more serious matter and gave the family a huge fright. Again. I didn't find out until afterwards when he seemed over the worst thank goodness. Even so, I didn't enjoy having to pass that on.

Steve, I'll pass that on with everyone else's wishes.

Last night, found out that things were not ideal as Hugh had developed an infection and a very high temp yesterday after seeming so good earlier. So panic stations overnight and some emergency surgical and drug intervention but looking much better this morning when I saw him. Temp is coming down and though still in intensive care and heavily sedated again, he was able to briefly open his eyes when I spoke. So, not out of the woods yet but through the most critical 24 hours and fighting hard!

I'll pass on all the personal 'get well's' from the forum when I can. It's amazing to me just how many people have turned up to see him or sent personal emails to the family, Hugh must have done something right with his life to touch all of them. There is often up to 10 people in the outer IC waiting area hoping to see him as only 1 or 2 can visit his bedside at a time and we've collectively been told off a couple of times by staff for making too much noise as 'Hugh stories' are remembered and recounted with enthusiasm.
Lyn, thanks again for keeping us so well updated!

I am not surprised that so many people turn up. Hugh is a very special person and in his own way a man of the world. He is also a kind and generous person with a wonderful sense of humour, and I and my family have enjoyed his and Sri's hospitality a number of times.

I propose we all keep sending all the positive energy we can muster towards Hugh - as we obviously cannot be present in person all of us (although I would fly out this minute, if it was possible).
